D-Link modem, connections fine
D-Link 300T ADSL modem, employer supplied Dell 2350 wireless Router : no connections to the outside world
Running laptop W2K and PC XP home. Modem to router to laptop and PC connections are ethernet

Getting totally bogged down with trying to reconfiguring the modem as gateway instead of DHCP ('cause DHCP didn't work), the router to whatever (tried everything I can think of)

What's a noddy set-up for modem, router, PC PLEASE. I'm less concerned with laptop-to-pc connectivity (although that'd be nice) - I just need to connect the laptop and the PC to the ISP

Oh dear, I'm feeling my age
